Under the Tents: NECA, Funko, La Bodega Gallery, Pop Cult Plushies

Warning! There be SPOILERS ahead. Seriously, if you’re still waiting to see that last episode of Game of Thrones, you’re going to want to skip ahead a little. If you want to see some teases from NECA and Polygon, panel news, and some exclusive reveals, we have lots of those in this edition of Under the Tents.

Here’s a look at what you might have missed:

  • Russell may be mildly annoying at times, but you can’t deny he’s adorable, especially in Patrick Ballesteros’s latest mini-original he’s bringing to Artists’ Alley Table #DD-08.

  • Warning: Game of Thrones spoiler! Scroll down to the next item if you haven’t seen the finale yet! Speaking of Ballesteros, he’s not only bringing mini-originals to SDCC. He pays homage to Bran the Broken in his latest Game of Thrones-themed SDCC print.

  • Pop Cult Plushies revealed their Arthur Fink Joker plushie you’ll find around SDCC this year. Make sure you’re following them on Instagram to find out where you can find Mr. Fink.

  • You’ll find podcast host Johnny Kolanski on two panels at SDCC this year, according to his recent tweet: “Making a Living Being Creative” and “The Wristbone’s Connected to the Something: Medical Mix-Ups in Film and TV”.

  • Tim Drake was excited to tweet that his On the Mic podcast will be broadcasting from SDCC once again this year. Look for their panel in the Neil Morgan Auditorium at the library, where the podcast panels always are.

  • La Bodega Gallery in the Barrio Logan Arts District has put out a call for artists to submit their work to be featured in this year’s Comic Book Art Show to be held during SDCC on Saturday, July 20.

  • If you’re in the comics industry, Susana Polo, Comics Editor for Polygon, wants you to keep some time on Friday, July 19 open for some super-secret Polygon plans.

  • Ray Costa had some good news to post on Facebook recently. Not only was his panel, Musical Anatomy of a Superhero, approved for the seventh year in a row, but it’s also been upgraded to Ballroom 20 this year.

  • It’s one thing for a proud mom to brag about her kids. Heck, if all three of my 14-year-old daughters were nominated for an Eisner, I’d never shut up about it. On top of that, Ben Blacker, who will be moderating The Writers Panel, invited Chelsea Cain and the girls to be on his panel. Congratulations are definitely due these talented young women.

  • Like Brett Favre’s football career, it seemed like Zombiewalk would always be there. This is not the case, apparently, as they’re scheduling their “13th and Final (No, REALLY) SDCC Zombiewalk.” Respond to their Facebook Event to let them know you’ll be there to see their final walk.

Anything we missed? Anyone you’re particularly excited to see this year? Let us know in the comments, drop us a line, or tweet us at @SD_Comic_Con.
